That's not correct - neither 1.10 nor 1.11 should cause issues such as crashes, in fact 1.11 has a lot more bug fixes. The stable / dev designator refers to the APIs offered, things can be removed from 1.11 and new APIs might see a lot of changes after they're added. I would encourage almost everyone to use 1.11 and report any issues they encounter.
We're having a lot of delays with 1.11 because this keeps happening:
Developer: 1.11 looks to be done, ready to promote to stable this weekend
User: I don't think it is ready, I've had issues with my plugins
Developer: Did you open bugs?
User: .... No
Developer: Tell anyone about the issues?
User: ....... No

The first thing anyone is going to say if you do that is "try 1.11".
